Bucs 2013 preseason schedule released

The Tampa Bay Buccaneers released their preseason schedule Thursday.
The Bucs open at home against the defending Super Bowl champion Baltimore Ravens in Week 1 (Aug. 8-11) before traveling to the New England Patriots in Week 2 (Aug. 16, 8 p.m. ET).
The Miami Dolphins host Tampa Bay in Week 3 (Aug. 22-25), before the Bucs close out their preseason slate at home against the Washington Redskins in Week 4 (Aug. 29-30).
The schedule includes a number of rarities. The matchup against the Ravens marks the first time the teams have met in the preseason and only the fifth game between the two overall. The Redskins’ visit to Raymond James Stadium will be their first preseason trip to Tampa since 2002.
